Fly Away Home

Joey returned last week for his first visit after leaving Encinitas last June to begin his freshman year in the Foreign Service School at Georgetown University. I grabbed my camera and videotaped his reunion with Lucy, curious to see if she remembered him. . .and did she ever! The two grew up together. Lucy was 3 and Joey 9 when he introduced himself to our family -- 10 years ago next month.

Joey posted the reunion video on his YouTube channel this morning after returning to GU and in the background included a song he wrote/recorded back then about our friendship titled, "Mirror Image." To fully appreciate how precious he was as a young child, and devoted to animals, here he is performing to a panel of judges on Star Search in 2003 that included Naomi Judd, Ben Stein, Dweezil Zappa and Donny Osmond. I love this video!
